MOSCOW, August 1 (Itar-Tass) - Former CIA employee Edward Snowden, who was granted temporary asylum in Russia, cannot be deported to the United States, even if the country makes an official request, a source in the Russian law enforcement agencies told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
“The granting of temporary asylum protects Snowden from deportation, because under the law a person, who was granted temporary asylum, cannot be returned against his will to the country, a citizen of which he is, or to the place of his permanent residence,” the sources explained.
